Lego Marvel Super Heroes delayed on Xbox One in Europe

No new release date provided for next-gen version on Microsoft's console

The Xbox One version of Lego Marvel Super Heroes has been delayed in Europe.

Originally planned as an Xbox One launch day release, Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment has confirmed that it will no longer be ready in time for November 22 and will instead launch at a later date.


"Lego Marvel Super Heroes is coming to next-gen consoles, but the game will not be releasing on the Xbox One console on November 22nd," reads a statement sent to MCV.

"We will provide a release date for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes on Xbox One as soon as possible."

The game is still scheduled to release on current-gen systems and the Wii U on November 15, as well as PS4 on November 29.

It isn't the first Xbox One launch game to suffer a delay. Peggle 2 was also originally planned to be ready for launch but has been pushed back to December.

Lego Marvel Super Heroes promises to "bring the characters, vehicles and action of Marvel's renowned universe to the world of Lego build-and-play adventure".

In a CVG Lego Marvel Super Heroes preview of the Xbox 360 version we said that at times it was surprising to see that the game was not running on next-gen hardware.
